I am looking for a highly skilled, articulate researcher/developer for a short engagement to investigate the options in migrating an existing desktop software application to the cloud. I need someone who understands the complexities involved in making an application that was built in Java FX work seamlessly on the web.
The deliverable will be a technical report that outlines the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats associated with each option, along with a set of practical recommendations for next steps and the costs associated with each.
To succeed in this role you will need to be:
- highly educated, technically literate and open-minded
- able to rapidly understand the requirements embodied in an existing desktop application, and anticipate future requirements and scalability concerns
- willing to ask intelligent questions to make sure you understand the subtleties, trade-offs and complexities of the project and are doing the best possible job for your client
- skilled in researching different technical options and critically evaluating them
- able to form robust and defensible recommendations based on your research
- experienced in communicating those recommendations in the form of credible and detailed technical report
- prepared to sign an NDA governed by English law.
Lots more information available on request. Principals only please (no agencies). Can you recommend anyone?
Please send enquiries and applications to: Dr. Tony Russell-Rose FBCS CITP, tgr AT uxlabs.co.uk

UXLabs provides research and design services to help organisations create user-centred interactive products and services. Our R&D program focuses on human-information interaction; in particular the challenges involved in understanding and modelling the context in which people interact with information systems and in developing novel interaction metaphors and technologies to apply that understanding. Much of our recent work has focussed on the challenges involved in searching, navigating and sense-making within complex information spaces. We have ongoing research collaborations with Sheffield University’s iSchool, City University’s Centre for Interactive Systems Research, Essex University’s Language and Computation Group, and Glasgow University’s Information Retrieval group.
